now, nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. pete, what do we know about their ability to communicate with him and about the legal steps that they will be taking? >> well, their ability to communicate with him is limited, because of this injury he has, his injuries are pretty serious. ehe's said to be in serious but stable condition. he's on a ventilator. they can't engage in a conversation with him, which is what they had hoped to do. it's something we're told that they do for brief periods because of his condition. it's written questions. it's written answers. nods. that kind of thing. so it's not a very, what you'd call a very robust conversation. >> what about the charges, arraignment charges? what is the legal process going forward? >> well, it's a little hard to tell, andrea, quite candidly. you know, my suspicion is not confirmed, but my suspicion is just reading all of the various signs and tea leaves, is that the charges have probably already been filed under seal. and why that is, i don't know, whether they're you know normally in the government when you, when
of boston. very disturbing. but here is something even provocative, former nbc news anchor tom broekhoff apparently putting some of the motivation for the boston bombings on his own country. >> i think we also have to examine the use of drones. the united states is involved in and there are a lot of civilians who are innocently killed in a drone attack in pakistan and afghanistan and in iraq and i can tell you having spent a lot of time over there, young people will come up to me on the streets and say we love america, but if you harm one hair on the head of my sister, i will fight you forever. and there is this enormous rage against what they see in that part of the world as a presumption -- >> bill: let me get this straight, tom. we shouldn't use drones to attack al qaeda leadership or taliban terrorists hiding in the mountains of pakistan? we shouldn't do that? so how exactly would you fight the war against terrorism, tom? do you want to invade pakistan? is that what you want to do? or, do you want to sit back and let terrorists hatch their plots and watch americans die at home and on
tsarnaev. nbc news' pete williams joins us with all the details. good evening, pete. >> well, the combination of evidence here the government says they have, larry, the main thing here is from a surveillance video from the scene of a second bombing, they say they can see dzhokhar tsarnaev come into view. they see him work his way into the crowd, take his backpack off, lower it to the ground. they say still photographs show it down on the ground at his feet and they say one of the most telling moments is when the bomb at the first site goes off. everyone around him looks, virtually everyone, they say, but he is calm, staring straight ahead, not reacting at all. he briefly glances that way, appears to use his telephone, walks away, 13 seconds later the bomb goes off at his location. that's the photographic evidence. next is the forensic evidence. they say both the bombs were made in pressure cookers. they say the inside they had green hobby fuse and also bee-bees that were somehow had an ad he'sive on them. they owe owe an adhesive on them. they say the two suspects brothers, t
since the attack. nbc news national investigative correspondent mike isikoff remains in boston for us. michael, what more have we learn about this lone wolf claim? >> reporter: well, this is looking more and more to bureau officials like a case of self-radicalization. as we've reported, dzhokhar tsarnaev said he and his brother acted alone. they were motivated by a desire to defend islam. and as a result of u.s. wars in iraq and afghanistan, that they learned to make the bomb from online versions of inspire magazine, put out by al qaeda in yemen. perhaps most significantly, at the moment, a preliminary review of the computer and cell phones that they used have shown no indicators of outside accomplices. this is preliminary. there is a lot more to go through. but the initial review of the cell phones and e-mails do not seem to indicate that there was anybody else who was an accomplice in the plot. now, as i said, it is preliminary. the bureau official are investigating of we also learned today that the fbi has been talking to members of that cambridge mosque where tamerlan tsarnaev had
now from boston is nbc news national investigative correspondent michael isikoff. and frank silufo, director of the homeland security policy institute at george washington university. good afternoon, to both of you. mike, as the investigations continue both here and oversea, we understand that investigators are confident these brothers acted alone. even as their family members express utter bafflement. what are we learning about the larger case against these suspects? >> reporter: well first of all, this is looking, martin, more and more like a case of self-radicalization. now, nothing is conclusive and, you know, we're far from the end of this investigation right now. >> of course. of course. >> reporter: but the preliminary indicators, first, you have tsarnaev saying the two acted alone. number two, that preliminary review of cell phones and e-mails do seem to show no indication of accomplices, no contact with outsiders prior running up to the plot. third, the no claims of responsibility by any outside terrorist groups. and, in fact, in some cases denials of any responsibility. o
to that central question that has been bothering all of us, the question of why. nbc news is able to report tonight that dzhokhar tsarnaev has told investigators he and his brother acted alone, they learned to build pressure cooker bombs over the internet, and were motivated by a desire to defend islam because of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. now, that early reporting may prove to be wrong. it may prove that the suspect retracts those statements later or maybe he's lying or he might be confused. but there is a small but significant cornerstone to build from that was not there before. we have left the realm of pure, complete speculation inside which would be frankly irresponsible to address questions of motives in the first place. in the case of dzhokhar tsarnaev even as we learn more about him and his life leading up to the bombing and what he is telling investigators, the question of why is intensely mysterious. if you spend some time on his twitter page as i did on the day it was first reported that he was a suspect, you'll find a teenager who mostly seems interested in stuff like wee
and the investigation into what happened. we begin with that. and nbc news justice correspondent pete williams. pete, what do officials know? what are they saying? >> well, consider this interesting fact. i just talked to a person who has done a lot of bomb investigations who says that under normal conditions, it is possible to gather up 93 to 98% of the bomb devices themselves. even though they will be in little pieces and will be all bent up. most of the bombs will not be consumed by the explosion. so they're optimistic that they will have within a fairly short time here, it may take a couple of days, a pretty good idea of exactly how these devices were made. and already they say they have a rough idea of what components were used to make the bombs. unfortunately, these are very common methods. there is nothing that really stands out. they say that the pieces were assembled in a pressure cooker. that there were ball bearings and bbs inside. some kind of gunpowder used as the explosive within a timer to set it off. and placed on the scene in some sort of black sacks. whether they're backpacks or no
consisted of just two bombs. nbc news has learned there were no other unexplode devices. at least five suspicious packages were destroyed and dozens had to be checked. in terms of suspects, right now there is no one in custody. however, police did interview a saudi man that was hospitalized with burns. they also searched his home in the boston suburb of revere and were seen removing items in bag. two men were being searched for. at this point it is not clear if the attack ornl natuiginated ov or domestically and there's been no credible claims of responsibility. today law enforcement sealed off the site of the explosions, an area stretching a mile long and about three blocks wide. streets are closed and the copley subway station is shut down. nobody is allowed into the area while the crime scene is active. >> that area is not going to be accessible for normal traffic. there are people in hotels, people who live there who have to work out how they get to and from where they need to be. but otherwise, i think it is fair to say that area is pretty much going to be locked down. >>> now for
me now, nbc news justin correspondent pete williams and michael leiter. pete, ha have you learn about the bombs themselves? >> well, what we're told by authorities, andrea, is that they're crudely made. they appear to have been assembled inside a pressure cooker. it may be some of our younger viewers don't know what that is, but in the olden days when you wanted to make something tender, you put it in this pot with a tight lid on it. and the steam wouldn't escape and you could build up pressure and things cook faster in them. the premicrowave days. inside a pot like this, a pressure cooker is assembled the device. it includes a low-power explosive. something like black or smokeless powder, gun powder, if you will. not a high explosive like dynamite or a plastic explosive or the common tatp, which seems to be the one of voice of terrorists when they build bombs, terror bombs overseas. so it's crudely made, it's set off they believe by some kind of electronic timer. it's carried to the scene, they believe, in some kind of back pack and then just set down before the devices go off. unfor
now with the latest on that investigation, nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. >> lawrence, good evening. investigators know this attack involved two bombs. what they don't know is whether there were other explosives involved. at least five other packages found on the street were deemed to be suspicious and destroyed by boston police and bomb squad techs. there were many packages to check. people dropped what they were carrying and ran away. we have heard conflicting accounts about whether there were unexploded bombs. some say two other packages were found that contained forms of explosiv explosives, others say there were just the two bombs. that remains unclear. several officials say the bombs that did go off included shrapnel that multiplied the injuries, b.b.s and ball bearingings. they are looking at surveillance video to see if they can see anyone placing packages at the points where the bombs went off. they described them with crude and less explosive power. they stressed tonight there is no suspect in custody, but they are talking to a 20-year-old saudi man here on a
an innocent bystander. >> let's get to michael lighter, nbc news terrorism expert. good morning to you. the key question everyone is waking up with is what is your gut? does this bear the hallmarks of some domestic terrorism or do you suspect it may be an act of international terrorism? >> i know it's not very satisfying but from my experience at the national counterterrorism center, you don't follow your gut. what you actually do is very methodically collect these pieces of evidence, it's the forensic evidence, it's the videotape, it's reporting from the cia and fbi and sources and putting that together. my gut is the person who did this has some connection to boston because they so effectively picked the iconic symbol of patriots day and the finish of the boston marathon. i also don't think we have enough information to point in domestic or international terrorism. you have to be careful speculating what it might be. >> on the one hand you have crude devices and on the other hand a coordinated attack. you can look at points on either side of this. >> although the devices weren't as l
. >> nbc news is reporting capital police are reporting a suspicious package at senator shelby's office. we have a bunch of fires, so to speak, regarding security developments. >> that could be the office down the hall. we could not see which senator's office it was in. we are in the russell building. they do have this hallway blocked off. pete williams is reporting that federal officials say they believe they know who sent the letters to st senate and the white house but no arrest has been made yet. they're waiting for test results. >> we're going to hear from jay carney sometimes in the past few minutes about either boston or developments in washington or both. just as someone who reports to the area every day, can you give us an idea of how different security looked? >> it doesn't have the mi militarized feel. yesterday we had a parade that didn't appear that different at all. today coming up here to capitol hill all of the trash cans in the parks have been taking off their bases and knocked over on their sides. clearly they're going to go around and collect those and provide one less pl
. >> this report is brought to you by new york auto show on nbc sports network. >> well, in new york city, it's the must-go-to event -- the new york auto show. 1,000 vehicles on the floor of the javits convention center, and a million new yorkers are gonna be checking out their favorites, including this, which is arguably mine. this is the all-new, never-seen-before jeep cherokee. this car is completely redesigned. 31 miles to the gallon. mom and dad are gonna be able to choose from three different four-wheel-drive options. look for it in showrooms later this year. well, toyota has their suv out that's completely refreshed. it's the toyota highlander. first time in seven years they've redone this. they'll have three powertrain options available under the hood, including a hybrid option, all-wheel-drive. it has what's called pre-collision warning, which will tell mom or dad if they're getting too close to a person in front of them. plenty of room for cargo and kids in the back. look for it later this year. well, if you want a little sporty sedan, the family might like this. this is from cadill

red asterisk over anything we see in social media just because we have not confirmed it at nbc news. we want to show you an interview we did earlier with a young woman who said she went to high school with dzhokhar. >> he never seemed out of the ordinary. he had lots of friends, did relatively well in high school from what i'm aware of. he did wrestling. this was never anything that seemed to be brooding for a while. this is an incredible shock to everyone that knew him. >> how long did you know him? all of high school? >> yes. since i was 14. i'm 20 now. >> when you saw those fbi surveillance photos yesterday which were released about 5:00 yesterday, did you immediately recognize him? >> . >>> saying he was the missing guy from brown, so we all assumed it was a coincidence and i went back to bed and i woke up and the scary thing is that was true. it was him. but yes, we all immediately recognized him. >> you're sounding like he's someone you say wasn't a brooder and somebody who was sociable and involved in high school. what else can you remember about him? >> he was a nice guy. he
. >> the story i know you've read the cover story of the "new york times" sunday magazine focusing on nbc's today show specifically an curry's departure and it's called best tv drama with a picture of ann curry and mat laur, who can save the today show? >> all that i will say on that is that i couldn't be bigger fans of our current anchors. savannah is somebody i know very well in her time in the washington bureau and there is always a lot of drama that goes on any type of kind of morning show. people sometimes feel that they know when it comes to the today show for example that's kind of a family and some of the reporting is that somehow the family is being frade. all my understanding of everything that's going on right now that matt and savannah couldn't be better colleagues. the staff that i work with couldn't be better. but the "new york times" magazine it's an int resting read. >> let me follow up because matt made the comment that when she was on the today show katie couric had a colonoscopy and he had his own by the "new york times." >> one of the point the article makes is a very fair one
in the investigation, itself. authorities now tell nbc news they are focused on finding two men who were seen on camera near the site of the bombings. one was reportedly seen setting down a black bag. and then dashing away just before the bombs went off. i'm joined by former secretary of homeland security, tom ridge. former assistant agent in charge of the fbi nypd joint terrorism task force, don borelli, and james cavanaugh, retired special agent in charge for theatf, now an analyst for msnbc. we don't know will it was domestic, foreign, or perhaps an exchange student here. we don't know what mix it might be. >> right. one of the challenges, need to know, journalists need to know, america wants to know, bostonians want to know. everybody is doing their very, very best. as the other individuals sharing this podium, this conversation with you today will tell you have to put together the pieces. it's incremental. it's labor intensive. we'll get there sooner or later. it's a very tough and challenging investigation. >> don borelli, why did it take hours and days decide to go public with pictures they've a
.s. capital, and also at nbc in new york with the anthrax. so it's eeirley similar. everybody is already on heightened alert and then learning aboutpoison to the office of a u.s. senator and to the president of the united states. i remember in 2001, a lot of other people around here had to take the anti-biotic around here because of the scare. but ricin is similar in everybody watching a very big event, and something else happening, but also gets everybody on pins and needles. >> stay right there, brianna keilar god added information. >> we're just learning now asking about the connection here. according to the source, the letter addressed to president obama is very stloor thimilar t sent to senator wicker. we don't know exactly what that is, if it's the envelope, the handwriting, the message inside, it's interesting what dana did say that bears commenting on. in the wake of 9/11, where it was weeks later, and there were the anthrax, this is a little different because you see the attack on monday, and we don't know if there is a connection here, but the letters being received on tuesday.

happened at the offices of nbc in new york and elsewhere. turned out at the end of the day we found out much later that it was not a related incident to 9/11. but we didn't know that then. and we don't know now even though we are hearing -- we saw from the fbi statement that jessica was just asking jay carney about that they don't believe that there is a link between boston and what we're seeing here. but they're leaving wiggle room. so that definitely raises question. >> yeah. to this day there are still plenty of unanswered questions about those anthrax-laced letters that were sent to members of the senate, members of the news media and others as well. that investigation never completely 100% satisfactory by any means. dana, standby. joe johns is our crime and justice correspondent. you're getting more information, joe, on what's going on. what are you picking up? >> dribs and drabs quite frankly, wolf. first we're being told authorities letting people out of their offices in the hart building there on capitol hill on the senate side, but they have not been given the all clear sign ye

[bleep] [bleep]. >>brian: being a tv anchor is not as easy as it looks, people. "fox & friends" starts... now. >>steve: come to work in the morning and they put the microphone on us, you've got to leave certain words in the other room. >>gretchen: yes. we do hope. he must have been looking down at his script and didn't like what he was seeing. that was what he was reacting to. can you imagine doing your first [bleep]. >>brian: by the way, if you were watching yesterday -- >>gretchen: no. he's looking down before he's going to say his first words ever on tv and he must have not liked the script he had been assigned because he gives two swear words, and then it went downhill from then and it never appeared on a newscast. i feel bad. he moved all his stuff to bismarck, and now he doesn't have a job. he's from west virginia. he moved all his stuff to bismarck. >>brian: isn't there good fracking there? >>steve: he might actually make more money fracking than
amendments including the manchin toomey compromise on background checks. joe manchin told nbc news this morning he does not expect the amendment to pass today. that it simply does not have the votes. and a bipartisan group of senators has now formally filed a bill calling for immigration reform. i will have more on both of these coming up in the news next hour.

of making is we have crimes that went over several days. we have a suspect that as of this point, nbc news hasn't confirmed the medical condition and there may have been a long lag before he was interrogated. as long as the investigators and the justice department are meaningfully applying that exception and saying we really are trying to get that actionable information and it may have been delayed bied medical conditions. they will be on strong legal ground even if they go past 350 minutes and breaks precedent. this goes to what we were discussing previously. if that makes an excuse of making a mockery of it, we don't know yet. if it does, it's our job as citizens and the press to keep a close eye on that. a lot of what we saw under the prior administration, under george w. bush, was the argument that terror makes everything different, i.e., you have less rights. in rah suel and hamdi, we saw a relatively conservative supreme court ultimately tell president bush, no, you can't twist like that just because it's terrorism. >> michael, that seems like the danger in calling it terror, right?
. nbc news is reporting that senator max baucus is the chairman of the senate finance committee. not going to run for re-election next time around. that throws open a washington game of musical chairs here as to who will get the gavel. they are so involved in writing tax policy in the country. looking at the list, you see senator rockefeller will be in line. he already said that he's retiring. so ron widen, a democrat from oregon state would be the guy in line here. he is a more liberal senator. he recently participated in the filibuster on drones. a roguish personality here. it's not a guarantee he will be the guy who gets the chairmanship. somebody else more senior from another committee could bump him. >> thanks. the market is surging today. we will show you how you may want to play this rally here. first rick santelli is going to talk housing in the show. rick? >> absolutely. there was never much talk about reforming the gse like freddie and fannie when they were losing money. there's a lot less talk about it now that they are starting to make some money. we have dr. anthony

they interviewed tamerlan tsarnaev in early 2011 at the request of a foreign government. nbc news has learned that government was russia. according to the fbi statement the russians were concerned that tamerlan had become a follower of radical islam and he'd changed dramatically in 20 tenas he prepared to travel to their country to join, quote, unspecified underground groups. the fbi did as requested and they checked phone records and interviewed tamerlan and his family and, quote, the fbi did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign and those results were provided to the foreign government in the summer of 2011. fbi says they didn't get any follow-up requests for info from russia. the media remembera of the russian rebel movement mujahadin put out a stoiment in the boston marathon bombings. they claim this is a russian plot to make them look bad and more closely align russia and the u.s. on security issues ahead of the o lympics in soji. >> thank you very much. obviously, a big story. >>> airline passengers are trying to feel the impact of the faa furloughs as they start to kick
and cheered. i want to bring in nbc's luke russert with us from copley square in boston, and here in new york, nbc investigative producer bob windram. bob, the criminal complaint has been served against dzhokhar tsarnaev. you've head it. how damning is this complaint for the suspect? >> i think what you have here is a very strong complaint. remember, this is not an indictment. and this was not an arraignment today but an initial appearance. one of the things that struck me, as i was reading it, was the description of the search warrant executed in his dorm room at the university of massachusetts. at pine dale hall, they found a pyrotechnic device. not further explained. they found what appears to be the white hat that he wore and the black jacket that he wore. as well as bbs. so what you have throughout this charging sheet is a number of very specific details that go to what appears to be a strong complaint against him. now, what happens as we go forward in terms of witnesses is not explained in this, but you can expect to see a large number of people coming forward, remember, everybody has t
't like to comment. big news houses like nbc. >>alright. kim kardashian and kris, they were married for 72 days before they separated but stayed married. kris said it was all a hoax. yada-yada-yada. anyway. finally they are divorced. but not after a whole lot of heartache. so, kim kardashian attended court every time. she was supposed to go there. he made such a big hoopla about the fact he wanted his day in court. he wanted this. he wanted that. he never showed up. the judge finally ordered the whole thing is kaput. he was on the west coast. while this was happening. and, essentially, they're divorced. moving on. >> moving on. >>> real quick. rumor has it -- justin bieber and selena gomez are back together. former couple split in 2012, after two years. they were allegedly according to "people" magazine, spotted kissing. >> they're young and in love. >> yeah. >>> finally, there is really no formula for what will snap people out of the shock like the marathon bombing. >> for boston it took the red sox star and another sort of bomb. abc's dan harris, a beantown boy himself, has the story.
thought, was very good. robin williams, will i am, everyone in the entire nbc williams' family. of course, there were the occasional news slip-ups. your new york post. might have misidentified two high school students at terrorists and put them on the cover of their newspaper. but, you know, obviously a paper run by accuracy aficionado rupert murdoch would obviously be quick to correct such an egregious mistake. >> rupert murdoch the owner of the new york post has not apologized. in fact he said on twitter and i'll read it. only new york post pictures were those distributed by f.b.i. and instantly drawn when f.b.i. changed direction. >> jon: why wouldn't rupert murdoch apologize for endangering two totally innocent young men? is it perhaps that years ago he purchased and had installed all of hitler's internal organs? of course everyone had a little fun at cnn's expense for their monster gaffe when they claimed an arrest had been made in the case and there was none. they took extra care not to misreport again. >> of course we have no idea on the motivation. we have to emphasize that again
comments like this [ bleep ] won't be heard at the news desk again. >> that was nbc's stephanie goss. humor sadly at that guy's expense. what does your gut tell you? do you think that a.j. clemente should have been fired? go to to cast the vote. make sure my mike is off any time that happens to me. that does it. and it happens a lot. that does it for this edition of "news nation." i'm tamron hall. i hope you have a good day.

it remains that way. host: we have seen on nbc news and twitter the fbi has released the remaining photographs of the remaining boston suspect. guest: that is a very clear photograph. it is interesting, he is 19. wassume his brother probably the mastermind of this. and on his face the county says he has no friends. i think this should be a pretty quick apprehension. host: the two men that have been searched for, one has died someone traded in and talks about that we are talking about chechnya and as terrorists. they say that is shortsighted and wrong. guest: in civil wars, there are terrible things that go on that are back on both sides. most americans when you think of think ofand, you terrorist attacks. civil wars are terrible things, where are the -- wheth we're talk aur civil war here in america or wherever it may be. but clearly, there has been serious abuse on both sides. it is not chechnya or muslim or christian or catholic or whenever. it is people that commit acts of terrorism host: colonel randall larsen of the institute of homeland security. -- is on on skarupa our line.
